Correa ‘Tucker Time Dinner Bells’ Native Fuchsia

A dense mounding shrub with glossy dark green foliage and a profusion of creamy green-tipped, red bell flowers from mid-summer to winter. The nectar-rich tubular flowers are highly attractive to honeyeaters, and other small birds will feed upon visiting insects. A good feature plant for a shrubbery, for containers and low hedging, a very easy care plant. Does well in sun to shade, and on a wide range of soils as long as they are well drained. Good for coastal positions.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT

Once you have found the plant that you want, the next step is to find where to get it. Nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may or may not have the wanted plant in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you.  Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you want, they can often suggest alternative plants that will be just as good for you.
